L&K Saturday 4:15 pm
L&K is an original Electric Folk collaboration created by Leah Walters and Konane Sky. The duo began with a unified resolve – remain as authentic as possible by not conforming to any finalized box of musical genre.
With influences ranging from Classical to Gritty Rock, L&K masterfully weaves the extremes of sophistication with raw emotion to create a complex tapestry of sound.
Often compared to the free sound of 60’s Counter Culture, L&K’s unique and haunting sound evokes a beautiful yet dirty spirit all their own.
Cabrillo Elementary Bluegrass Band Sunday 11:30 am
This talented string band made up of 12 3rd and 4th graders from Cabrillo are excited to play some Bluegrass at the Fog Fest. Led by Jared Katz which teaches music at Cabrillo Elementary.

San Francisco based singer songwriter Curt Yagi has been on a tear through the Bay Area music scene. The 2008 Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter (SF Bay Guardian) and RAW San Francisco Musician of the Year had his song “Sweep Me” included on the very popular KFOG Local Scene 8 CD in the Bay Area. Curt and his full band, The People Standing Behind Me, are always-engaging to the crowd and bring a blend of upbeat acoustic rock with hints of reggae and ska for an island-inspired sound.
Dave Crimmen Sunday 2:30 pm
According to Dave’s older sisters, he has been playing music this since he was just six months old! Inspired by the legends – Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry – Dave set out to emulate the feel good, rock out vibes that make hips shake and heads bop. Dave loves his music. He writes his music for the girls, the fans, and the fellow lovers of classic rock.
The Up & Down Band Sunday 4:15 pm
Traditional American music played aggressively. Roughed up Bluegrass, Outlaw Country, Rock and Roll, Irish Drinking Songs. We started as loud rock/punk three piece in 2005. Added a banjo in 2008 and started doing a few country songs and got down to two drums with a standing drummer. Added a Mandolin in 2012 and started playing Irish Drinking songs. Fiddle came next and we are now a full six pack.
